The words of the poet Homer were originally spoken aloud to rapt audiences who sat spellbound by tales of heroes and kings, battle and sorrow. Relive the experience of this oral tradition by participating in a daylong marathon reading of the The Iliad. Readers of all ages and backgrounds are invited to participate. No special training is required. Space is limited, and listeners are welcome throughout the day.

For more information, please see the attached poster.
Sponsored by the PSU Hellenic Studies Program with the Portland Art Museum. Additional support from the University of Portland, Reed College, Willamette University, Portland Community College, and Literary Arts.
